Solaris Performance tuning

Dear all,

I have a Local zone , where users feel that performance is not good.

Is it wise to collect the inputs from the local zone rather than taking from the global zone.

And also Can I tune from Global zone , so that it will reflect in local zone.

That depends on what you want to collect and how but it is generally wiser to take them from the global one

That depends on what you want to tune. Some tuning cannot be done but on the global one.

You need knowing where are your problem, for this, you can follow the following steps:

First: Checking processor and memory usage from global zone

# prstat -Z
Second: Disks status

# iostat -zxcntp 5

With this, you could see somethings bottleneck.
